obama was ready to do just that. they pounded out a serious agreement between the two courts, the u.s. and israel. the people of the united states are not the obama audience. the best result is over the other side, over in tehran. they get to see how serious we are. they build a weapon, we come at them. if they know that now, it could change everything. >>> and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

chris: david, that sounds pretty tough. you think of barack obama as we all know them. he was really there, he was against the iraq war. he was president because of that. >> make no mistake, this is a president that does not want to get into another war. as he looks at syria, he sees a slippery slope. he does not want to slide down it. he had to make those statements this week because he had had said that use of chemical weapons would be a red line. he never said what he would do about it. the one thing that you can be certain of, as obama looks at syria and iran, he wants to avoid any kind of entangling war, long expedition nature war like america has fought over the last 10 years. chris: these wars, if we go into iran, does anyone think it's a quick war, in and out, without historic repercussions on the other side? >> absolutely not, which is part of the reason why nobody within the -- there are very few people in the administration that have any sort of appetite for a war in iran. the same goes with syria. we saw with the libya entanglement, we saw sort of barack obama'

obama think of the congressional progressive caucus? my opinion, he likes it i don't think the president believes that crew is fanatical because they want what he wants. by the way, the far left kooks do want to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so we would eventually become greece or cyprus if the u.s. dollar collapses and people stop lending us money. some conservatives believe that's exactly what the far left wants. a collapse of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans continue to elect them. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from lower m

in additional aid, and mr. obama also pushed back at some criticisms of why the u.s. has not intervened militarily in syria. take a listen. >> you know, i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily it's criticized, and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. >> reporter: the president should be back in the u.s. just shy of midnight tonight, but while mr. obama heads home, secretary of state john kerry is remaining in the region. he has a pair of meetings today, one of them with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. that's taking place in jordan. another one that will take place over dinner with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu of israel. just another signal of just how important this issue is to the administration as they're showing once again their commitment to try to revive these peace talks. alex? >> all right, pet

president obama the same way they embraced our last two presidents. thank you. >> so you had to get a polling question in there at the end? chuck, you're just encourageable. look, opening premise to your question was, that having failed to achieve peace in the middle east, in my first term, that i must have screwed up somehow. and i will tell you, i hope i'm a better president now than when i first came into office. but my commitment was not to achieve a peace deal in my first year. or my second year or my third year. that would have been nice. what i said was, i was not going to wait to start on the issue. until my second term, because i thought it was too important. and that exactly what i did. i'm absolutely sure there are a host of things i could have done that would have been more deft and would have created better optics. but ultimately, this is a really hard problem. it's been lingering for over six decades. and the parties involved have, yes, some profound interests that you can't spin, you can't smooth over, and it is a hard slog to work through all of these issues. i will

the top donors to president obama last year were colleges. the university of california gave the president a whopping $1,200,000. unbelievable. harvard university almost $700,000. so you can see that american college students are mostly caught in a liberal environment whether they like it or not. enter ryan row rotela a student north of fort lauderdale. vine mormon enrolled in a communications class taught by the vice chairman of the democratic party if you can believe it dr. deandre poole has been a democratic activist, an activist for years. yet, is he running that class. and as part of the course, dr. poole apparently ordered his students to disrespect jesus. >> he said everybody write jesus on bold letters so what i did was wrote jesus just like this. afterwards he said everybody put it on the floor. he took it out. put it on the floor and he had us all stand up once we were standing up he said stomped on it that's when i picked up the paper from the floor and put it right back on the table. any time you stomp on something it shows that you believe something has no value. so, if you we

after liberals were dancing in the streets over president obama's reelection they are now crying in their beer and some don't even drink beer but they started. because they are are now realizeing that their taxes have gone up. way up in some cases. and obama care which was supposed to save them $2,500 a year is busting their budgets as the cost of their healthcare is soaring. ultraliberal comedian bill maher must have met with his accountant and gotten his tax bill. here is what he said. >> rich people i'm sure you would agree with this actually do pay the freight in the country. something like 70%. and here in california i just want to say liberals you could actually lose me. it is outrageous what we are paying. over 50%. i'm willing to pay my share but it is ridiculous. >> mike: like he realizes between the federal tax hike and california's highest income tax in the nation he is going to now be paying about 60% of his income in taxes. and democratic strategist donna brazil who i really respect and like noted that her health insurance was sharply higher than before obama care an

. >> i like it. you get your chance, take it. >> okay. we will start there actually. president obama touched down in the west bank city of ramallah this morning and great by president abbas of the palestinian authority kicking off the second leg of his four-day visit to the middle east. today, the israel army confirmed four rockets were fired from the gaza strip landing in southern israel and causing some damage. the rocket strike, which has not been claimed by any palestinian militant group, is the second violation of the cease-fire that ended the clash between the hamas and israel this past november. yesterday, the president's meeting with israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu focused on another threat to israel in the region. it runs nuclear ambitions. >> we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the region, a threat to the world, and potentially an threat to israel. all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> richard, help somebody out at home who is watching this. the president of the unit

, however, is in communities across america, coast-to-coast, with barack obama's campaign, by the hundreds of people. going to community events. going to swearing-in ceremonies. going everywhere imaginable. and then establishing those real authentic contacts that no five-month campaign -- no matter how big -- is going to be able to overcome. and that's why we're committed to hiring hundreds of paid people into african-american, hispanic, and asian communities across america, even in 2013, which, for our party, doesn't really like permanent politics, is something very new. >> but is there also a messaging problem there that folks aren't liking the message that you're delivering? >> well, i think it's a matter of, you know -- it's kind of like, you know -- it's not -- our moms used to say, it's not what you say, it's how you say it. and i think it's a lot of that. now, look, one of the issues that i think really cut pretty badly within the hispanic communities, when mitt romney talked about self-deportation. you know, it's a concept that really doesn't -- it's not our party's position. but i

problems have proved intractable. at the same time, president obama's trip to the middle east last week hassles put new focus on trying to restart the israeli-palestinian peace process. the trip through the region has provided kerry with a first-hand introduction to a daunting agenda and it is likely to be only the first of many such trips to come. for more on the challenges ahead for secretary of state for more on the challenges ahead for secretary of state kerry, i'm joined by michele dunne, formerly with the national security council and state department. she now heads the middle east program at the atlantic council. and susan glasser, executive editor of "foreign policy" magazine. it seems as john kerry hop scotchs around the region, all he is encountering are rocks and hard places. am i right? >> yes, you are right about that. i mean, this is a region i think that actually has been crying out for a bit more u.s. engagement, but that doesn't mean that it's going to be easy. the secretary kerry clearly shows he's ready to be engaged but, you know, he's walking into a situation in ira

? >>> president obama plays couples therapist between world powers, nudging israel to pick up the phone and say, sorry, for an international incident. >>> also in national news, last march was the warmest on record. we didn't know how good we had it. another nor'easter on the way as winter overstays its welcome. >> good afternoon. we're following news that broke just a short time ago that could seriously affect everything from travel to disaster readiness. the federal aviation administration announced its closing 149 regional airport control towers due to those forced spending cuts that went into effect at the beginning of the month, the so-called sequester. florida, texas and california are the states with most closures. they could have a major impact on you. the tower at the ramona airport in san diego county, california, is on the list. ramona serves as a fire fighting air base. the place where plane tankers like the one shown in this file video can fuel up to fight wildfires ravaging southern california. administrators say there is no other airport in the area equipped to handle the job. a
challenges against proposition 8 and the defense of marriage act. >>> president obama is back home in the u.s. he was in israel, the west bank, and jordan. >>> secretary of state john kerry remains in the middle east including meeting with benjamin netanyahu. he urged iraqi leaders to overcome sectarian that threatens the stability. let's go to kristen welker. what is the president saying about the trip to the middle east? how are they characterizing this trip? >> reporter: hi, alex. officials believe he set out to do. he also reaffirmed the united states' commitment to the israeli people. the israeli people were skeptical about that prior to the trip. and then there was an unexpected diplomatic victory where president obama, through arm twisting, convinced netanyahu to call turkey and apologize for a deadly raid against a turkish ship. that will be key in moving forward with issues like syria and tries to reopen the peace process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president
with obama as president and the democrats in the senate to even get votes on good ideas. in other words, we're now finally getting the democrats in the senate to write a budget which for 1418 days, four years, they never wrote a budget. how do you campaign against democrats in the senate if they don't even write down what they're for? so there are differences in how you structure. i think there's a lot to be learned from republican successes with governors like walker in wisconsin who made dramatic changes on the cost of government, government-run pensions, the unionized government work force and bobby jindal with school choice. he's planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax, moving in a very different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines
